Jedi Archives / cleaning vintage figs
« on: August 13, 2011, 02:18:13 PM »
So I just came into a collection of vintage figs and most if not all of the torso's on them have a white film on them.  Originally I thought they were just worn, but I tried scraping one and the stuff came off. 

Is there a safe way to clean this stuff off without damaging/ruining the plastic?  And am I giving myself a rainy day job using a toothpick, q-tip and some handsoap?

Wampa Cave / Check this stuff out
« on: August 12, 2011, 08:39:26 PM »
So I noticed in the local paper tonight an ad for an auction with "toys".  Went to the site and it listed SW stuff.  Check out the link to the pics of the stuff available.  Might ask the wife if I can go.

Non-Star Wars Toys / Green Lantern Toys out today.
« on: May 01, 2011, 09:59:28 AM »
For anyone who's interested, and let's be honest, who wouldn't be,  the Green Lantern Toys that originally had a street date for May 16th are out today instead.  There is a banner in the TRU flyer promoting it.  I called to make sure it wasn't a typo.  Who doesn't want a 3 3/4 inch Ryan Renolds??


Video Games / Homefront
« on: April 17, 2011, 10:06:18 AM »
Don't see a thread for this so I'm starting one just cause I found something cool in this game that I had to tell people about.

I don't know what they are called, but they are square designs that are similar to UPC's that people with an app that can read barcodes and the like can scan.  I found a couple in Homefront and scanned them, they take you to a website with short live action films (one at least is a cartoon) that are designed to make the game more believable.  I thought it was a nice touch of combining media and technology with an easter egg type of thing.  Hadn't seen it done before.

Game on the whole was ok, very linear.  Ending sucked and was completely set up to be a franchise game.  Only played single player as I'm not forking over money to Bill Gates to play games online, that and I'd also have to get the $100 add on to make my 360 wireless.

Don't know if anyone has posted this link before but it's pretty cool stuff.  I'd love to give it a try, could be tricky not knowing how to read the majority of the instructions though...

Check it out.

Off Topic / How do I post a bunch of pics?
« on: April 27, 2010, 03:04:40 PM »
So the max pics per post is 4 according to the posting rules and only 85kb per pic.  I want to list stuff in the b/s/t with small pics, but there are more than 4 items.  How do I do this.  I've seen many other posts with more than 4 pics.  There has got to be a way!!!!

Scout Report / MOVED: TVC, have your say...

This topic has been moved to Wampa Cave. N  Not so much a scout report as it is a discussion, wouldn't want people to get the wrong idea....

Lego / Chrome Lego Minifig Stormtrooper @ TRU
« on: March 22, 2010, 06:46:49 PM »
So I've read on a couple of sites about a Chrome Stormtrooper mini fig that is available in the US TRU with the purchase of $12 worth of Lego.  I've also heard that it's making it's way up here sooner rather than later......

Off Topic / HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
« on: December 31, 2009, 11:07:53 AM »
Just thought I'd start this now as I may not be on the computer tomorrow.  It's been a great, if not sometimes frustrating (HASBRO, this means you) but fun year of collecting and meeting up with fellow snowtroopers at the various toy shows and for trades. 

Here's looking forward to a New Year of new stuff that we don't miss out on cause we live north of the border, and wishing all members of the Snowtroopers forum and their families a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Cheers to all

Sports / NHL Legends 8
« on: November 13, 2009, 09:33:20 AM »
Saw a case of NHL legends 8 at local TRU.  Sawchuck, Horton, Gretzky, Lemiux (X2, one reg, one chase) and on more that slipped my mind.


Scout Report / Star Wars sale at TRU
« on: May 28, 2009, 03:08:58 PM »
Just got a copy of the new flyer and ALL Star Wars figs and playsets (and everything inbetween by the looks of it) is on sale starting tomorrow, Friday, at 30% off.

It shows the helmet and transformers crossover but states figs and playsets.  I'm assuming the clearance stuff isn't included as that seems the norm at TRU

Hey all, my wife and I watch every week, but with the holiday she forgot it was on.  I was at work and normally watch it at 11 (timeshift) but when I reminded her about it, she realized she forgot and wants to watch it.

Any ideas on where I can get full episodes.  I tried Rogers on Demand and it's not there. won't show it in my "geographic location" and globlal doesn't seem to have then, or I can't find them there.  I tried azurus without any luck.

Any other ideas?


Non-Star Wars Toys / New Star Trek Toys at TRU
« on: April 09, 2009, 03:49:14 PM »
Saw a slew of new stuff for the new movie at my local TRU.  2 different size figs (3 3/4 inch and about 6"), also had phasers, tricorder, communicators.  Plus in boxed stuff there was the enterprise itself ($50), a transporter playset and a bridge playset.

Saw the latest full trailer (a good 3 mins long) last night.  I'm actually very excited about this movie.


Off Topic / Happy Holidays
« on: December 24, 2008, 01:23:07 AM »
Going to be off the computer for a couple of days, unless I get some sweet star wars loot to talk about, so I thought I'd send out Holiday wishes, Merry Christmas, Happy Channukah and other assorted greetings for this festive time.   Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday.

Cheers!! :D :artoo: :)
